Carriage of Dangerous Goods Manual 1 ADR works in such a way that classification is the precursor for everything that follows.
Once a substance or article has been properly classified, table A (ADR 3.2.1) allows every other requirement to be ascertained by working logically through the columns.2 The rules for classification are in ADR at part blue frame oakley sunglasses 2. Dangerous substances (and this includes articles) are very widely defined, but some, how much are oakley sunglasses for example most medicines and cosmetics, do not have the hazardous properties that would bring them within scope of the requirements, and those that do are usually carried in very small receptacles, allowing at least partial exemption from the requirements (either limited quantities or limited loads see Main Exemptions)3 Consignors have a duty to identify the hazards of the goods they intend to transport. There are nine classes, some with divisions, as follows.UN Class1.1 1.64Part 2 of ADR works through the categories in logical sequence. It sets out descriptions and criteria in some detail. The consignor must assign a "proper shipping name" and UN Number to the substance.5All relevant hazards have to be determined (ADR 22.214.171.124). There is a hierarchy of classification (ADR 126.96.36.199.3) and there are rules about choosing the most appropriate entry and hence UN number (ADR 3.1.2). paints) have already been classified, so in many cases a consignor may only need to find his substance in the "dangerous goods list", which is in part 3 of ADR. The lists are by UN Number (Table A) and alphabetical (Table B). Both lists are at the end of Volume 1 of ADR. mixtures of substances) will not be found in table A of ADR. In those cases the rules for classification need to be followed.8An important change was made in ADR 2011 in paragraph 188.8.131.52. The effect of this is that dangerous goods should be classified and named according to the properties of the predominant substance, and in general the presence of impurities is not relevant. There are some specific exceptions which are set out in 184.108.40.206Once a UN number and proper shipping name have been assigned, table A allows all the relevant parts of ADR to be accessed. Some substances with the same name will have different degrees of danger (for example flash point). This is reflected in the "packing group" (PG), which is found in column 4 of table A. The head of column 4 in turn directs you to the relevant part of ADR (in this case 220.127.116.11). Where a substance has been classified from "first principles", its PG will be determined by its properties (for example ADR 18.104.22.168.3 shows how flammable liquids are assigned a PG)10Some substances are not assigned a PG (notably gases and explosives), but they do have a transport category, the relevance of which will be discussed elsewhere (Main Exemptions) in relation to limited load exemptions. In certain special circumstances it may not be practicable to classify the goods fully before carriage, for example when sending samples for analysis. In such cases it is acceptable to "over classify" the goods on the basis of the information which is already www oakley com sunglasses available (ADR 2.1.4).11Proper shipping names may also be qualified by the addition of the terms such as 'SOLUTION'; 'LIQUID'; 'SOLID'; 'MOLTEN', 'STABILIZED'. Details at ADR 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199.12ADR has changed in respect of classification for environmental hazards. There are links to the classifications implemented in GB by the CHIP regulations and to the GHS system of classification. See ADR at 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206.10. This means that all dangerous goods, not just those directly assigned UN 3077 (solids) or UN 3082 (liquids), meeting the relevant criteria will be regarded as environmentally hazardous substances and required to show the "dead fish and tree" mark. The requirements for the mark mirror discount oakley sunglasses for men the provisions for labels and placards (ADR 220.127.116.11 and 5.3.6).13With the exception of clinical waste, wastes are classified in the same way as other substances. The rules at ADR 18.104.22.168 mean that where generic or "NOS" names are chosen, the substance or substances giving rise to the hazards may have to be named. See Special Provision 274 where it appears in column 6 of Table A. The word "WASTE" should qualify other descriptions where applicable (ADR 5.4.
1.1.3), and should appear before the Shipping Name [back to top].
